It is a word that many of us have heard of before. A word that many of our people have had firsthand experience with, whether from a frightening and traumatic life experience, or a life filled with chances and hope of recovery.

Although it is easy to identify huahuatau (metaphor) in written or communicated kōrero, it is not always easy to physically interpret huahuatau (metaphor). Especially when we attempt to apply huahuatau in our respective roles in Māori health.

Resilience, fortitude, stamina and endurance. These have been the defining hallmarks of the Māori journey towards wellbeing and prosperity over successive decades, centuries and millennia.

Over each of the three days a range of thought-provoking kōrero, interactive workshops and structured physical activities will be presented. Each of these contributions will challenge hui participants to consider the relevance and potential for the concept of Nukuroa to be applied across new and current initiatives that promote purposeful physical activity and optimal nutrition within Māori communities.

In this instance, when a bird is ready, it stretches out its wings, faces the wind and launches itself into the air - He Pi Ka Rere!
